She didn't kill anyone. She lured the dude back to the house so the other guys could rob him. Then they killed him after they robbed him. She's still a piece of shit, but just wanted to get some facts into the mix here.

"Tourette's defense"?

As in, "The condition made me tell the guy to follow me, and tell the other guys to shoot him, shit, damn"?

That is correct. Her crime of robbery and false imprisonment, (heck... possibly kidnapping, conspiracy, weapons charge) now include murder since she was part of the "total" crime that occurred. Just like how a get-away driver gets busted for robbery even though he stayed in the car.

Wow, my bad. I figured she'd be accessory to murder or something. I guess it looks like she might hiccup her way to the death chamber.

Felony murder is a bitch. Our founding fathers would be proud how we're locking people up for 20+ years for felony murder.

Apparently she was above being knocked up at 15 but murder at 19 was completely within what she felt was fine.

Really? Read up a bit on how crimes were punished in early America. Pay a lot of attention to puritan views on judging members of a group committing crimes...

"The Puritans believed that if one member of their group suffered guilt, then the whole group must suffer along with that person or persons."

Heck, the felony murder rule was started 20 years after the declaration of independence so I'm pretty sure they were still in the loop about such things.

Hell yes. I get the hiccups almost every day, often more than once, but they usually only last for 15-20 seconds. When I drink beer is when my marathon hiccups start, and it can be frustrating.

Although he wasn't clear, I think he was referring to the felony murder rule.

Re: Remember the "Hiccup Girl"? Well, she murdered someone. (Guess the state)

There was a real good documentary done by Frontline addressing just this felony murder rule. The rule is as far away from justice as it gets. One example they used was a gang of teenagers robbed a convenience store. One of the teen shot the cashier and killed him. All 4 teens were charged with felony murder. Now how is this justice for the other 3 teens who agreed to rob but never though that one crazy teen would fire and kill the cashier. All they set out to do was for some quick cash. While I understand the nature of the crime is horrific and they agreed to rob which they should be punished for their act individually, not guilty by association. One of the teen didn't even know what was he doing and was scared the whole time he was there. He was just 13 and said that he was peer pressured into doing it. Now how is this justice to lock this kid up for 20+ years, because a murder was committed in the process of a felony offense.

And yes, I'm referring to the felony murder ruling as oppose to misdemeanor murder. Get off your pedestal if you don't know this ruling instead of making a stupid crackass.

Here is a way to avoid serving 20+ years...don't commit violent crimes. I'm 31, and I've somehow managed to avoid ending up a poor, scared participant in a robbery mob.

Except, one loon took a life. The others were dumbfounded that their crime was changed from robbery to murder. Now had all 4 of them conspired and agreed setup to rob AND kill, fine please lock them away for life if I care but one loon killed on his own will is totally different than to say "THEY" took a life.

They willingly participated in an illegal act that resulted in a murder.
